Wow, so cool to hear your story. What great memories you must have of actually being a cast member of the Lone Ranger and other terrific series. Tell us more?!

My name is Shirley DeRoche'. In the episode "Flood Waters", The Lone Ranger, I played a little girl named Sally who was the doctor's daughter. My stage name is Shirley Kelly. Some people wrote in and wanted to know names of the supporting casts. All I can help you with is my name. I was in several episodes of the Lone Ranger and several episodes of Sargent Preston of the Yukon in the 1950's.The shows were sold to someone in CA and this is the first episode I've been able to find that I played in. I will continue to search for more. It's very exciting, thank you.
You bring up an excellent mystery! Of the countless number of so-called "experts" who write about the LR Radio Show, not one of them know the names of the supporting cast! And we have book on "The Mystery of the Masked Man's Music" that has the names of nearly every piece of production cue music. But no names of actors. Here is all I know, and it isn't much either. John Todd, who played Tonto, said he voice-doubled. And at times I hear Brace Beemer voice-doubling. Virginia Gregg said she did women's voices. Jay Michael did the guttural voice of Butch Cavendish. He was also the original Sgt Preston voice. I'm guessing that same voices on SP and the Green Hornet were in TLR since they all came from WXYZ's George Trendle emplre.
Maybe someone can fill in the blanks. Again, darn good question!

Yeah, The Lone Ranger!
Thanks for posting both of these pages of, "The Lone Ranger!"
The sound is very good and you do not get much better than this for westerns.
A lot of the voices sound familiar and I wish I knew who the actors were over all of the episodes. I keep getting that, "is that...no it can't be..." feeling. lol

A big loss.
It's a real shame that programs such as these are no longer being broadcast. They are the among the best programs that have been made by anyone anywhere!!!
